  Days Hotel London Shoreditch
by RhineRoll
 
 

This is a fairly new hotel about a mile from Liverpool Street Station in a formerly run-down part of town which is fast becoming rather upscale and sought after. Straightforward rooms, straightforward breakfast, but good quality overall. Flawless service. Room was a bit narrow for wheelchair users, but bathroom was perfectly usable.

While the discount rates last, the hotel is an excellent alternative for the overpriced Holiday Inn Express in nearby Old Street. I would definitely stay here again -- get those good rates, while they last! (not very long, I suspect).

Unique Qualities: I made my reservation for this hotel with Gtahotels.com and got a price that was almost too good to believe -- EUR 63 including the English breakfast buffet! I don't think offers like these will last very long, the hotel is excellently placed for the Olympic venues, Hackney is already now becoming a very hip part of town -- the new Islington so to speak. Across the street is an inexpensive grocery store, where you can buy a bottle of water for 50p rather paying double price at one of the convenience stores in Liverpool Street Station.
